The Traditional Owners of Paluma Range National Park are the Nywaigi Aboriginal people. They welcome you to their country and ask that you respect and enjoy this place. The traditional name for the Paluma Range is Munan Gumburu, which means ‘misty mountain’, an apt description as morning mists are common.


Access to the Jourama Falls section is 91 km north of Townsville or 24 km south of Ingham. Access to the Mount Spec section is 61 km north of Townsville or 40 km south of Ingham.

What's special

Paluma Range National Park, the southern gateway for the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, is comprised of two sections. The northern section features Jourama Falls—a picturesque waterfall framed by rainforest. To the south, rainforest-cloaked Mount Spec rises 1000 m above the Big Crystal Creek floodplain. Both areas offer a range of recreational opportunities.

See Jourama Falls and Mount Spec for more information.
